Spoiled by the other "Penny Parker" series reader, this story suffers from some awkward reading and interspersed em-PHA-sis. I had to be patient to get used to the pacing, but the plot is similar to other Parker tales. Two stars for the reading, 3.5 stars for the plotting. I suppose 3 stars is a fair if a little generous rating. I wish the other reader had done this little adventure as well.
